As Jon and Kate Gosselin await a Pennsylvania judge’s ruling on what sanctions, if any, Jon will face after pilfering their joint bank account, RadarOnline.com spoken with Lisa Helfend Meyer, a Southern California family law expert that is accustomed to having high profile clients in the media - Khloe Kardashian hired the legal ace before she married Lamar Odom.
Meyer, whom doesn't represent either of the Gosselins, tells RadarOnline.com that it isn't uncommon for couples going through a divorce to maintain a joint bank account, however, it does cause potential problems. "It is not unusual for parties to maintain joint bank accounts. It is not advisable because the money that is usually deposited during separation is separate property and as a result it can become an accounting nightmare," Lisa says.
As for Jon Gosselin's motivations for ceasing production of the children participating in the reality show, Lisa warns that his motivations could harm him. " I am sure Jon pulled the plug because he was vindictive. Whether I agree or not, apparently he had no problem with the kids being filmed previously. I also think it is a bad move legally as the Judge will probably see it for what it is. Remember he was fired from his show so it was a way of getting back at her."
The advice Meyer would give the feuding Gosselins? "My advice to them would be to retreat to their separate corners, rethink the course they are each taking and then try to resolve all issues in their case. Unfortunately for them with 8 kids they will have to deal with each other until death do them part."
Sounds like great advice to us!
